FishnSleep Fishing Report: Garibaldi Saturday July 8th, and Sunday July 9th.
Day 1: Went to Garibaldi Saturday morning, met my friend Brian and his son at 5:30 a.m. The ocean was forecast to be calm, it was not. Wind chop and swells made for a long ride to Three Arches. We dropped three pots on the way. Early in the day, the youngest passenger found out what sea sickness was. He was a trooper, did not say anything, despite being ill over side of the boat, good job there. We decided it was best to head back, this was about 8:30 a.m. Dropped off our passenger and headed back to Three Arches, no action. By this time the ocean had laid down, so we decided to run to Pacific City Area. We managed four rockfish, and one ling cod, lost a few other fish. Picked up the pots, 16 crab and got back to the dock about 4:00 p.m.

On this day none of the fish wanted the home-made copper pipe jigs. I had to change my strategy and offering. I used 12-16oz jig heads with lime green curly tails, that seemed to entice a few more bites. At Fisherman's Marine and outdoor sale, I purchased a Berkley IM8 7' 9" extra heavy rod for under $60. The rod appeared to work as well as my more expensive Shimano rod.

Another great report as always, Garibaldi is too far north for me. Surprised the jigs didn't work when that happens sometime some squid helps.

Will have to try that next time. Some of the lings past few weeks have been puking up squid and octupus when hitting the bottom of the boat.

Where do you fish out of 4labs?

Take care

Gold Beach. That's my comfort zone. 3hr drive but can stay at my father inlaws place at Brookings. Due want to try to build your pipe jigs this winter and had a close friend in GB that made them but he died.
If I remember right he put a small pipe inside it and added some buckshot so it would rattle.Lings would kill it.and would use tuna hooks the 2 hook. With 80 or 100lb braid we could brake the jig free if you got snagged.
Great pic and reports
